September! Where have you gone?


Whoa! Halfway through the month already? I'm still reeling that it's not August anymore.

I'm so happy you decided to take Lucky Lucille. She is adorable! I hope she and Sister are getting along....she's a pretty personable cat, but you never know. Last night, I caught Oscar trying to climb up the screen of the living room window. You know, the living room on the third floor?!? I kind of freaked out on him.

I separated the sleeves on the puff sleeve cardigan, see?
Sorry about the "sepia tone." It's a night picture on my cell phone camera. But isn't it awesome? I think it's awesome. The fit is pretty much perfect so far across the boobs as it is. However, the pattern calls for a seed-stitch button band after I'm done. I'm thinking I won't put the button band on it, because I don't want to add another inch or so of width. I'm considering a crochet border or something so the stockinnette doesn't curl, and then doing little i-cord loops for buttons instead of the button band. I'm also starting the waist shaping early, because I'm short, and I think I'm going to TRY and bring the waist in a little more than the pattern calls for. We'll see if it works out.

Oh yeah! I dyed my hair red. I have an excuse to be a sassy bitch now....so watch out!

See you in a week and a half!
